Hello,

I am getting some Wyandottes through my feed store, which orders from Mt Healthy... Has anyone ever gotten chicks from there? Did you like them? Why or why not? Did they look even close to what they are supposed to? I don't need any SQ but it would be nice if they were pretty! Do you have pics of them (at any stage in life is fine)?

Thank you so much!

Thank you so much! I was worried that the quality would not be anywhere near as good as what I see here... I only want pet quality (as stated before) but I do love some eye candy!

I got Silver-laced Wyandotte and Golden-laced Wyandotte chicks last year and they were very friendly, healthy and grew to a nice size. They lay a nice size brown egg and I think that one of the Golden-laced lays a darker egg. Very nice people to work with.

Ok, thank you! You mentioned their temperament and egglaying... What about broodiness and color? Any comments?

EB: I can't type tonight! I messed up atleast three times just typing this!

My husband prefers the silver-laced wyandotte coloring while I prefer the golden-laced. There are many other colors - one hatchery has black, blue, and white along with the silver and gold. then there is there are Partridge, Buff, blue-laced red wyandottes, Columbian, some that are laced feathering and others that are penciled feathering plus many more. Check out this website for some examples: http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/CGP/Wyand/BRKWyand.html
hope
that helps

As far as broodiness, mine are hatchery bred so that has mostly been bred out of them. I have been told the bantams still go broody and there always is the odd one that just might go broody. Good luck deciding. It is hard to pick!
